94. Suede
One of the most important bands of the BritPop era, Suede was a pivotal reason that the British music scene moved back towards guitar driven songs as opposed to the heavily distorted shoegazing sound that dominated British Alternative in the years previous. Suede was one of those few bands that lived up to the hype that the critics bestowed on them, and if there is any criticism on them (and this is a big one) it is that they did not crash down the doors in the United States. That fact makes it exceptionally difficult for them to enter the hallowed halls in Cleveland.
